The thermal fuse should be connected to and near the heating element. Check the paper electrical diagram, taped on the inside of the dryer.

SOURCE: how do i test a thermal fuse
A fuse is tested using the continuity or resistance (ohm) setting on a multimeter.
Disconnect the power to the dryer. Disconnect the leads to the fuse. With the meter set on continuity, the meter should beep - if you set to ohms, you should read 0 ohms across the terminals of the fuse. If you read infinity, the fuse is bad.

Thermal fuse. If the dryer overheats, this device stops the flow of electricity to the heat source and/or the entire dryer. It is located on the blower housing and cannot be reset. The most common cause for overheating is a vent tube clogged with lint, a birds nest or other debris.
